Default Odd sort of Backcountry Question

Just throwin' this out there:

I used to backpack a pretty good amount in the park. I've done several backcountry backpacking trips...then I (re)discovered fly fishing.

Now, I measure a trip's success by how much time I get to spend on the water (catching some fish adds to that factor, of course, but it's not critical...to me at least). So, ALL of my trips are to front-country sites with good access to fishable waters. I get to do that about twice a year.

Lately, I've been toying with doing a backcountry trip. I'm sure I'd enjoy it, but I'm concerned that I'm going to resent the walking as a distraction from fishing. I can bang out a lot of fishing over three days when I'm camped next to the stream and don't have to move to my next overnight spot. (Admittedly, I'm getting lazy in my old age. I think I can make the adjustments to my gear, menu and adult beverages to pull it off; it's the walking I fear I will resent.)

Does anyone else share that? Anyone else had to overcome that?
